So I know I promised all sorts of updates while Josh and I were in Uganda adopting our new son, Titus, and daughter, Eva. And I really intended to. But then we got there and were informed that it would be wisest not to talk about the adoption/post pictures until completing our exit interview with the U.S. Embassy. Which happens at the very end of the process.  Like, the day before you leave. And then I wanted to tell everyone why I wasn’t talking about it, but that would be talking about it, right? You see my dilemma?

But now we are back in the beautiful U.S of A. and I’m free to talk about it as much as I please! Yay! Only I’m kind of drawing a blank. I knoooooow. So obnoxious. We were there for a month so obviously a lot happened. But I think my brain is a little overloaded. Before we left a couple who had adopted from Uganda told us in an email, “Adopting from Uganda is not for the faint of heart.” They were not kidding.

Aside from the obvious result of our trip, that we have two more children, God taught us so much through this experience, and I can’t wait to share it all with you. It was a very difficult month, but as with most difficult things, this has shaped us and, I hope, changed us for the better.

So, I promise stories and details, but for now, how about some awesome pictures, yes? I know that’s all you want anyway, is pictures of our cuties. You’re welcome.

We’ve been home for a week now. There have been difficult moments and there’s definitely a lot of adjusting happening, but honestly we can’t imagine things going any better. The kids, all 4, are doing really well.  Thank you to all who have supported us. God has been incredibly good to us.
